. this goes back to the beginning of the obama administration. in the first television interview president obamas days when he was sworn end with the foreign tv network, he promised he would provide middle east peace in our time. then president obama went on his first foreign policy trip to cairo. he spurned our longtime ally, the egyptian president mubarak, by inviting the muslim brotherhood, who at that time was outlawed in egypt, to attend his speech. he gave them a front-row ticket to his speech in cairo when mubarak's policy was to keep the destructive muslim brotherhood at arm's length. when you hear the muslim brotherhood's mission statement, you will understand why president mubarak would want to stop the violent muslim brotherhood. this is their macho. -- mott. -- motto. dying in the way of allah is our highest goal. it was even said that jerusalem will be our capital. i want to be perfectly clear this morning. even though the democrat party had a little trouble with this last week in charlotte, north carolina, the undivided city of jerusalem is not now, nor will it ever be anythi
is -- thing i'd say is we started spending $800 billion under president bush and president obama continued that stimulus package. unemployment was a little under 8% when we started the stimulus package. four years later, unemployment is 8.5%. so that indicates exactly what many of my brothers in the cpc have said to president obama, for various reasons it didn't happen, but if you are doing stimulus funding let's turn it to detro and atlanta and old cities, littles do the empowerment zones, target it toward our underserved communities and communities of color. we don't have any initiatives coming out of this administration, no empowerment zones such as you saw from president clinton. we've seen none of that come out of thisstration streags. so i'd say look, if we're going to keep spending, you've got to target some money. that's the same message the congressional black causeous said to the president on the heeled -- heels of president bush's spending. for whatever reason that was never able to happen. catch me on the side and i'll give you my thoughts on that. i'd also advise, you know, th
to get rid of is known as obama care and i'm going to get rid of it. [applause] now that doesn't mean that we're not going to make improvement to our health kay system. we know that health care is too expensive. obama care doesn't make it less expensive. when the president ran for office, he said he would cut premiums by $2,500 per family. obama care pas is up $2,500 a family. that's a $5,000 difference and for median family in america of $50,000 about, that $5,000 is a huge impact. has a huge impact. i'm going to go after getting the cost of health care to get reined in and by the way, i'm going to do that by taking on malpractice, i'll do that by letting individuals be able to buy their own insurance. without just getting it from their company. and of course, in health care, we have to make sure that people who have preexisting conditions are able to get insured and that folks that get sick don't get dropped by their insurance company. a lot of things that we can do to improve, but we don't have to have obama care that raises taxes. we don't have to have obama care that cuts medica

obama -- and you were four years ago? he wants another famine years. but america cannot continue with the status quo. more americans have lost their jobs under president obama than any president hundred feet -- since the great depression. the jobs numbers just came out of our august with another disappointing month with only 100,000 new jobs. just this week, when the democrats were data for their convention, we solve the nationaln debt -- national debt scope over 15- -- go over 15 trillion dollars. we have suffered from one president -- an unpresident said -- unprecedented downgrading of our credit rating. you know that debt is not the way we need to go for this future. [applause] president obama, when he was a candidate in 2018, said it was on patriotic to act -- in 2008, said it was unpatriotic to add to the national debt. illinois now has been lost -- the most public debt per capita than any state in the nation. they have been most underfunded liabilities for their public pensions. they are $4 billion behind in paying their bills on time. when there was republican control of t
convention, president obama, vice president biden and their wives traveled to new hampshire. other speakers are speaking. this is one hour and 15 minutes. ♪ >> what a great crowd. you all are terrific. i am glad you are here. that we are here to welcome the president barack obama, the first lady, michelle, the vice president, joe biden, and jill biden. to the greatest state in the nation. we are so excited to have the fab four in new hampshire. they have come here fresh off of their fantastic speeches in charlotte. this week in charlotte reminded us again how very proud we are to have barack obama as our president and michelle obama as our first lady. president obama is fighting for what democrats have always worked for -- an economy grounded in america as -- middle-class prosperity and an economy that is built to last. present obama knows this is a make or break moment for the middle-class. in order for the middle class to thrive, we need to restore the basic values of fairness and balance that have made this country so great. if you work hard and play by the rules, if you should be able
to the best of our. -- our ability. >> as you take a minute, is this a broader issue with the obama's response to arab spring? >> in some regards yes. let me first take a moment and commend tim as i have before in his leadership on after -- after the tragedy on april 16th at virginia tech. as we learned from what we wrong and improved the safety of our colleges. tim, i commend you once again for that. now, in so far as national security, there are a lot of challenges facing us. we had an opportunity beyond the side of an uprising in iran years ago when people wanted a more free society in iran. i wish the president had said we're on the side of people who wanted to change that thee ok si but they stayed challenge. when ronald reagan called the soviet union the evil empire that gave them heart. that needs to be prevented. you have worries about particularly in syria, chemical weapons stock piles. you have attacks on embassies in libya and elsewhere around the world. this is exactly why it is so dangerous and so wrong to be playing these political games for the armed services. we need to have a
obama about china and he brought out his five point economic plan. [applause] >> thank you so much for that warm introduction. and for all your help and supportand congratulations to christina as well. thank you. good to be here. -- good to be home. i have a son here. and a grandson. hi, guys. [applause] it is an honor to be your guest and speak to you as we begin national hispanic heritage month. i am pleased to represent the party of governor susana martinez and marco rubio and ted cruz. [applause] these leaders are republicans for the same reasons as millions of other hispanics. they see ours is the party of opportunity, the party that will restore america's prosperity. at our convention, governor martinez described that experience that is so familiar. at the beginning of her career she was a democrat, and she got an invitation to go to lunch with a couple of republicans. the words "democrat" and "republican" did not come up. they talked about issues, such as how to keep welfare from becoming a burden to work. and how much government is needed because it becomes a burden to smal

[applause] >> hey, everybody. how are you? thank you very much m. jane, everyone here, i appreciate the introduction and this chance to be with you in new orleans. you have had a busy convention. i know that many of you may time yesterday to volunteer around this great city. it was very much in the spirit of a group whose motto calls to the service of others. this country honors those who serve. we have set aside today as a nation to remember those men and women in uniform who were taken as prisoners of war or went missing in action. to honor those who have endured hardship and to remember those who remain missing, i like to begin with a moment of silent prayer, if you will. i thank you for that. thank you for your kind hospitality this morning. life at 50 +. i am not there yet, but i am told that it will come before you know it. [laughter] i'm a little more focused today on my 40's and in particular, the next four years. i have given a good deal of thought to later seasons in life. not just as someone
, as dictated by president obama down pennsylvania avenue, if they want to work a budget together and we can work these things out together, we can come back in a heartbeat. we'll be ready to go. but we saw with that supercommittee, just as i predicted in july of last year, they didn't want an agreement. apparently my friend talking in the last hour didn't know but pat toomey's made a proposal that would have caused more tax that is had to be paid by the wealthiest in the nation. that are already the top 18%, pay 39% of the taxes. well, if they get 39% of the income, they should. but they only get 13% income. but they wanted to pay more. here is a proposal in good faith by republicans we'll raise revenue, and it was reported here locally that, gee, some of the democrats said this may do the trick. we may get to an agreement now. this is great. thanks for doing this. we can reach an agreement. then they go away and must have talked to harry reid and president obama and you can see the game plan. you got to go back and tell them we are not going to reach an agreement because our best help for
into the calculation? >> overtime, if he were to look at what happened over the obama table tax cut took effect, that had an immediate affect on gdp. if you with the first quarter were too, people suddenly had more money. this was the increase in the cut in the social security payroll tax. people suddenly had money and you saw that go into the economy. when you're looking at the gdp mass, a cousin to the economy -- math, it goes into the economy. when you have something out, you have a sudden hit and the economy can start growing again after adjusting to that kind of shock. the risks for anyone saying we will recover after six months with confidence among consumers and businesses is the slow about our political situation, you run the risk of going into a self reenforcing downward spiral rabbit and gives up and decide they're not going to plan to buy a new car a year from now or invest in their new plant six months from now theory that it turns out to a much worse. it is very difficult to turn a recession around. this is what they're doing the basic gdp math without looking at the other facts. >
islamic radicalism and an element of political correctness in the unwillingness of the obama administration to publicly talk about islam being the cause of terrorism. do you think he would follow through on that? do you think he would move more to the bush second term formulation, which they would abandon the ideas and went for a softer approach? do you think he is just blowing smoke on that? what would be the impact of the u.s. started speaking more about islamic terrorism being a threat? >> q. did a great an entire religion based on the backs of a few is a poor policy. -- to denegrate an entire religion based on the acts of a few is poor policy. the reagan -- arabian peninsula will have a very warped view of the tire religion is a mistake. i think that probably comes from pressure within his party. the right wing of his party to make this a political issue, but i think it is misguided, and is bad policy. >> it is very unfair to norwegian white supremacy. [laughter] we have had a couple of really dramatic terrorist attacks that should stand for the idea that this is a proble
results. look at where president obama has taken our economy. 23 million people struggling to find jobs. the poverty rate in america is the highest it's been in a generation. half of all of our college graduates are either unemployed or aren't even working in the field they studied for. the president has put us on a path of decline, of debt, a nation in doubt. here's the good news -- we can fix this by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. now president obama clearly came into office during troubling times. he likes to remind us of that quite a bit. here's the problem -- he made things much worse. so knowing this, the president can't run on his record. it's a terrible record. so what does he have left? he's going to have to distort, divide, demagogue, talk about fear and anger, anything but what we actually did the last four years because it's a bad track record. now, here's what we are asking you to do -- we want to earn your support. we want to deserve victory. we want to show you if we put the right ideas in place by electing the right leaders,e with can get t
that are the exact opposite. when you vote 98% of the time with obama and tell us you are a regular middle of the road, that takes a lot of guts. i have to give her credit for that. >> to what extent should the, still a matter? matter?ll >> i think he opened the view to how he thinks for missourians. they say a lot about how he views things, and that is where the need to pay attention. i believe a rape victim should be allowed to have emergency contraception in order to avoid pregnancy. todd akin does not. i believe his view is extreme and out of the mainstream for most missourians. he wants to abolish the middle wage. he wants to do away with student loans. think what would happen to columbia, missouri, it's the only kids who could get college loans were the rich kids. he wants to privatize medicare, privatizes security. he wants to do away with the student lunch program. he is one of a handful. i think there were four or five members of the united states congress that voted to eliminate the child nutrition program. the vote was something like 416- 5. i do not think that is the mainstream
why they want to hide from the american people. president obama and congressional democrats will make sure that people hold our colleagues accountable. the president has said to congress, stay and passing middle-class tax cuts. we need to extend tax relief to 98% of the american people. 100% of the american people would get tax relief on their first $250,000. 98% would get full tax relief. 97% of all past due businesses would get tax relief. the republican position has been, no, unless people like mitt romney, unless companies like bain capital get a bonus tax breaks, nobody else in america can get tax relief. it is no wonder that they want to cut and run. especially when you look at the next plan. look at the ryan-from the budget. but -- romney-line budget. what do they want to do? another round of big tax breaks for wealthy people at the expense of everybody else. if you are serious about dealing with our long-term deficit, the question is -- how do you choose to do that? if you provide another round of big tax breaks for people like mitt romney, it means you will cut seniors on med
: there are some money things i want to say. it isn't it funny that obama goes out in a speech and he cries about how romney as wind have all of this money, all this dirty karl rove money against him. was it like $800 million they put in the campaign in 2008? i am in the right to work state and i'm glad. if the teachers unions are ready to strike in chicago, they are in a mess. why does the press hold obama responsible for anything in chicago? he gets arne duncan to be the superintendent of schools. he got the subprime mortgages going with citibank. not one person talks about it. we hardly did not get any stimulus money. it is like in north carolina. you had to be a union worker to work in the convention center. isn't that discrimination? guest: back in the 2008 cycle, there were two unions who talked about how they spend $400 million on obama's campaign alone. someone in "the new york times" wrote about that. there's a lot of money in the political process. not that we separate out this money, but when one pot of money has compulsory power when they pay as a condition of their employment, that i

, that is the foundation for balancing our budget. it is way too easy to demagogue this. i have listened to obama and romney who have both demagogued and misrepresented the facts. i do not regard people getting government benefits as moochers. if we do not address it, it will not be long before we are greece. >> the government has to honor its commitments. we need to honor commitments we made our seniors, and that is why i say, let me be clear, no one over the age of 40 should see their benefits cut or their taxes increase. promises were made by government and promises need to be kept. we need to make sure that all happens, and i believe there is bipartisan support to do that. nobody is going to watch social security fail. >> the promises were made to secure the votes of people over 65. since world war ii we have been doing it. it is a $60 trillion unfunded liability, and are we going to solve the problem? will we ignore it? and if we ignore it, god help the united states of america. >> recently at the national convention, republicans called for a constitutional amendment banning all abortions wi
cannot afford four more years of barack obama. we are not going to have four more years of barack obama. memo wednesday, president obama and mitt romney meet in their first presidential debate -- >> wednesday, president obama and money in the first presidential debate, hosted by jim lehrer from "the newshour." follow our live coverage on c- span radio and online at c- span.org. >> they just tell you the news straight up. there's no ads. that is arguably the biggest reason. i am a firm believer that the c- span video archives are truly a gift to the american people. it is arguably one of the most historical -- i would say one of the most historical archives there are. i primarily watch the "washington journal," the house of representatives proceedings, and c-span2 for the u.s. senate. >> jake young watches c-span. c-span -- created by america's cable companies in 1979, brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> 3 political cartoonist presented some of their favorite works over the past year during and even recently hosted by the newseum in washington. they talk ab

to take my word for it. ask the chief actuary at medicare services. he works for the obama administration. his job is to look after your medicare. last year invited him to congress to answer a simple question -- if president obama's medicare cuts were used to pay for new spending in the obamacare, how can also improve medicare insolvency? his answer? they cannot. it is simple. you cannot spend the same dollar twice. his exact words -- it takes two says of money to make it happen. president obama never provided the other to strengthen medicare. there it is. from the guy whose job is to know it. if anyone tries to tell you that obamacare and strengthen medicare, ask them -- where is the other $716 billion? [mixed reaction] medicare is going bankrupt. everyone understands this. even president obama said last year, "if you look at the numbers, medicare will run out of money. we will not be able to sustain the program the matter how many taxes go up." the disagreement is not about the problem. it is about the solution. you might have heard about the approach mitt romney and i would take. i wil
